The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers are pleased to announce the Squirt Spotlight for week ending November 24, 2019. Every week a player from the squirt major (‘09) and minor (‘10) teams will be featured. You’ll learn more about his favorite movie, food, sports team and more!
This week we have a special squirt spotlight featuring David Gensert. David Gensert is one of the bravest and strongest kids we know, as he is currently fighting cancer and this weekend, the Jr. Flyers Squirt Minor team welcomed David to join the team as an honorary player.
The New Jersey Avalanche and the Jr. Flyers showed what true sportsmanship is by giving David fist pounds and well wishes, as the squirt minor team presented him with his team jersey!
